    Human rights and democracy are not in any contradiction or opposition. Rather, each constitutes a condition for the emergence and success of the other within the community. Through their combined influence, they provide the individual with a life based on the freedom of self-determination and collective self-determination. That is why the protection and realization of human rights really constitute the basis of the democratic

    The terms "election" and "repress" are connected , we can say that people , who are against Government or who are from different community, there rights can be repressed by government during the time of election, which ruins the system of democracy for example , during Adolf Hitler time period, Nazis take away the rights of Jewish people whereas Germans right were preserved .

    Democracy and elections are linked to each other (electoral democracy), which is a system in which citizens can vote for their government, and considers that decision-making is limited to an elected person or group, can govern an authoritarian rule

    "Opposition" and "Corrupt" are very much similar terms and related to each other, because of corruption by a state's leaders the opposition party can't protest against the unfair and unjust decisions of them. The corrupted leaders don't even care about the sufferings of the people rather they focus only on their own gain in illegal way, and if any opposition tries to talk or act against them, they simply shut their mouth off by unfair means i.e. corruption.

        I think it is needed to increase the consciousness of general people about the harmful effects of corruption and about their human rights. If people are conscious enough they all together would be able to protest against corrupted rulers and free their state from them, and the corrupted government wouldn't be able to stand a chance against mass upsurge of people.

        I don't think there’s any easy way to solve this problem if the leaders of the government itself are being corrupted.The only way to improve the situation is to continue protesting against them even if they have to suffer for talking against the government. After all,For how long can they suppress anyone?A long term protest will encourage people of the whole country to speak against corruption and suppression and therefore,stop the corruption. Though it takes a long time and effort, it is effective as we can see what happened in Zambia.

        Another probable solution is to convert the country's economic system into socialism system. It's because as we know in socialism system everything is owned by the whole community and there is no property owned by any individual. So there is no means of corruption as there will be no benefit in it. I think by this the situation can be improved and the opposition can participate fairly.

    I think, "DEMOCRACY and "HUMAN RIGHTS" both are interrelated. Proper implementation of human rights can make the objectives of democracy successful. On the other hand, if an accurate and constitution based democracy are followed in a country, then human rights and independency of people will be ensured automatically. So, both Democracy and Human rights all together ensure the suitable development of any state and both work for the interest of people.That's why DEMOCRACY and HUMAN RIGHTS can be called two sides of a same coin.

        Tom @ Topical Talk's comment 09 Sep 2021

        The third word which I can connect with the two is election. In a representative democracy election is the method by which the electorate appoints its representatives to government, and by which the elected representatives make decisions. It is our right to choose our own representative. Democracy and human rights altogether ensure the development of any state and a fair Election finds a democratic ruler who will ensure these things. So ELECTION is the other word which is related with HUMAN RIGHTS and DEMOCRACY.

        Tom @ Topical Talk's comment 10 Sep 2021

        Yeah!....ELECTION is also connected to these 2 words. Because fair election can be only held if rules of Democracy are followed strictly in a country and if a fair election is held then the rights of people will be ensured specially their voting rights. The fundamental objectives of democracy start with fair election. So we can say, Democracy, Human rights and Election are 3 knots of a same rope!

    "Human Rights" and "Election" are surely interconnected. Election means a voting procedure where the opinion of the public is signified and Human Rights give everyone the right to be involved as such. If the importance of the opinion of the people i.e a significant Human Right would cease to exist, the concept of "Election" would cease to exist as well. So the very existence of the two is interdependent.

    If opportunity doesn't work, build a door.
    "Election" for an "Opposite Party" is a great opportunity until the people can protest and select the best leader fearlessly. It's not easy to open up mouth against the government if it is corrupted. I think getting united with other opposition parties might be a good choice ensuring no betrayal. But Hakainde Hichilema has already shown the world that it is possible to be elected as opposite party after 6 years of facing the difficulties.

    "Democracy" and "election" are interrelated with each other. Democracy basically means the opinion of the people. And election is the procedure of selecting the representatives of the people.Through election people express their desire of whom they want to see as their leader. People have individual opinions and all are free to express them and all of their expressions are found in the election which is basically governed by democracy(that is people's opinion) . So - Election is not possible without democracy.

    The one word answer to the question, " What is the precondition of human dignity?" is election. Unlike other animals, just after the demand of food and shelter, human minds crave for the "feeling of importance". The happiest moment for us is when our opinions are evaluated. We feel the power of existence. Election empowers an individual stating that his or her vote matters, that his or her voice matters. Getting that acknowledgement , an individual becomes conscious about his or her rights and thus can claim for it. Not only that one, it gives the citizens right to choose their own leader. Furthermore, this practice is not just confined within the sphere of electing their representatives. Rather, this practice of evaluating other's opinion remains present in each and every sphere of the citizens' life. Mutual respect grows among the people. Which is immensely needed for making the world a better place. And this is how election enshrines human rights.

    There is an intrinsic link between democracy and human rights which cannot be disputed. Human rights secure the implementation of democratic decisions and thereby help democratic government to become effective. In a democratic county people have the right to get a fair election in choosing their representative. In election the opposition comprises one or more political parties or other organized groups that are opposed, primarily ideologically, to the government . Therefore, there is a chance of corruption or malpolitics used by either government or the opposition parties for illegitimate private gain. Misuse of government power for other purposes, such as repression of political opponents is considered political corruption.
    To sum up I would like to say there is connection between human rights and democracy. Opposition is related with election system. And corruption occurs by someone or a group to repress a group of people or something else.

    Only when the government is democratically elected will the full rights of the citizens be established. Otherwise citizens will be deprived of human rights because of corruption of the illegal government. It is the only possible way to provide all basic rights of citizens is the practice of democracy. That's why ''DEMOCRACY'' and ''HUMAN RIGHTS'' these two terms are so much related to each other.

    I think"Opposition" and "Democracy" are interrelated and can't be separated from each other.
    Opposition is the real voice of the people and the society. They works as a watchdog of public interests in a parliamentary democracy and keep the ruling party on its toe and criticizes the policies .
    Democracy without a strong and and constructive opposition becomes authoritarian in nature and exceeds its delineated jurisdiction which is not interest of democracy. Because of these reasons, democracy and opposition are closely related to each other.

    The words "Democracy" and "Election" are indistinguishably basifixed. It is inconceivable to administrate a democratic country relentlessly while not having straightforwardness within the election system. Since the precondition of democracy is to prioritize the supposition of the bulk, election is the sole approach to sustain democracy.

    I think Democracy, Election and Opposition are three linked words..because when people have a say about running the country it's democracy, election is what we do to maintain demoracy and there is always an opposition party in an election.

    Again,Repress,Corrupt and Human rights are three linked words... because when government represses,then corruption is held and human rights are violated.

    Similarly, Opposition and Repress are connected because when government sometimes tries to repress it's opposition party to win the election.

    I rolled the dice and got numbers 2 & 5 that is ELECTION and CORRUPT. And I think they are interrelated. I would like to connect another word here. That is REPRESS. Because in an election, it is the right of the population to vote for their preferences. But as we can see in most of the underdeveloped countries, people don’t get the freedom of voting a new leader. They are deprived of their rights forcefully which is to REPRESS. In this case, the acting government is using its position and power (for a dishonest purpose) in fear of handing over the ruling power to the opposition. Again, opposition leaders and other activists who speak against the government are arrested and beaten which we can define as CORRUPT. The example of the repressive regime of Edgar Lungu at Zambia is very much suitable here for a better understanding of the connection between these three words – ELECTION, CORRUPT, REPRESS.

    "Democracy- Human rights- Election- (will stop) Corruption & Repression- Opposition (be fair)- Democracy"
    If we have proper Democracy in the state, human rights-( freedom of speech, freedom to vote, social security etc. ) will be ensured, again this will ensure a fair election all around. Thus a big "STOP!" will be given to the repression & corruption. This will ensure the opposition party to be fair in politics and Democracy will prevail in the system. This cycle will be ensured only if we are very much conscious and raise our voice against any corruption unitedly.

    HUMAN RIGHTS are the rights that are basically granted to an individual for maintaining a standard living within a country. The duty of the government is to ensure that all the population of his country can get the access to all the human rights.But if the government is proved to be ineffective in their ruling, the people through their rights criticize the government and have them leave the power.In that situation if that government tries to extend their tenure they start to REPRESS the human rights of the general people ultimately turning the ruling power into a corrupted one.But that is not always the case. Sometimes revolt occurs in a country by the minority (like, the minority wanting to have their own sovereignty and territory ) then their rights are being REPRESSED by the government to prevent the revolt. Actually at those moments the government repress their rights for surveillance purpose.So the terms HUMAN RIGHTS and REPRESS are related.

    ▶️ "What is the fundamental aspect of democracy?" Your ans should be "ELECTION." There is no alternative to election in a democratic form of government to run the state by the people's representatives. People exercise their democratic rights by participating in the election and casting their votes. So, according to my opinion as the "DEMOCRACY" of an individual is ensured through proper "ELECTION," these two words are interrelated to each other.

    ▶️Now, what is ensured through election? Undoubtedly, your answer will be "HUMAN RIGHTS." If your president told you today that you would stay for free in a palace but you could never meet your family, what would you do?You will never ever accept that if you aren't greedy. If your mentality is well enough, you'll want to get the priority of your words. Yes! We are human being who really love to give priority and get priority. So human rights play a great role in our happiness. As the Preliminary way of ensuring human rights is election, we can say that "HUMAN RIGHTS" and "ELECTION" are interrelated.

    ▶️Did you remember what did the former US president "Abraham Lincoln" say about democracy? He defined democracy as the "Government of the people, by the people, for the people." Yes! Where democratic system is practiced in a country in the best possible way, the human rights stay intact there always. Democracy teaches us to respect other options. It also balance the rights of men and women. As democracy is the most precious way to ensure the fundamental rights of human being, the two words "DEMOCRACY " and "HUMAN RIGHTS" are interrelated to each other.

    Now, if you ask me to draw a state triangle, the 3 elements which I'll like to connect are- "DEMOCRACY," "ELECTION" and "HUMAN RIGHTS."

    DEMOCRACY and ELECTION are very much related words. Where there is a democracy, there must be an election.But that should be a fare one. We should not vote one for only our personal benefit, rather should judge the candidates and cast vote for the eligible one. Otherswise, there will be continuous mispractice under the coverings of democracy which is active only in name.

    Human rights and election are acutely connected. People enjoy all human rights to live freely , independently. Likewise an election ensures the independency of people to have their own competent leader. The chosen leader plays a great role in many sectors of their life where they need to be free, independent . To me , election and human rights are nothing but an ideal example of an independent life . In this sense, human rights and election are precisely related.

    ''Democracy'' and ''Opposition'' these two terms are interrelated. A democratic country must have opposition parties. Oppositions raise their voice against the corruption or wrong decisions taken by the government and raise the demands of the citizens. The ruling party will not be able to do whatever it wants because of the opposition and they will have a responsibility to the citizens. Thus the opposition plays an important role in a democratic country. Opposition is the key to democracy.

    Whenever we feel deprived of our actual rights, we all must stand up for justice in the face of anyone even if it's the government itself. And when the government comes up as a medium of tormenting people and obstructing them to raise voice for their HUMAN RIGHTS, we see the need of OPPOSITION as the paramount!
    It is then the opposition who challenges the government and fights to its best for justice, for ensuring proper usage of power and the desired rights of people !
    So obviously OPPOSITION is closely interlinked with ensuring HUMAN RIGHTS for all!

    The keywords that I choose to connect :
    1. Democracy
    2. Election &
    6. Human Rights
    The word " Democracy" is defined as - a. government by the people especially : rule of the majority. b. a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections. Democracy itself includes elections and human rights. When a government, the 3rd essential element of a state, is democratic it manifests that all human beings notwithstanding realm, culture and context are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
    General elections are included as democracy policy as the elected officials are accountable to the people and they have to seek approval to continue from the voters periodically. It secures individual's opportunities for influence ang guarantees human rights. A democratic government renders highest priority to good governance ensuring law and order in a society. Then what is securing the proper implementation of democratic decisions and help government to ensure good governance? Yeah, the answer is human rights.

    I found that REPRESS and CORRUPT are very much inter related words.

    To have a vivid understanding, we need to think in the way of a ruthless leader of a state where democracy is not practiced. So the leader will not let any voice to be raised against the regime and will try to neutralize the opposition party. For that purpose a huge amount of bribe is sent to the loyal high ranked officials and it is passed to the lower levels as well. Thus corruption becomes widespread like a pandemic in the society. As a consequence, the voice of the people is muted and the freedom of the speech is snatched. The economic condition of the state starts to deteriorate. Eventually mass people get repressed and become the real sufferer of this nasty situation.

    So wherever there is high rate of corruption, there is repression.

        This is only my assumption.Repress can be put to use to fight against corruption.If the authority(for example of an office) starts to handle the issue of corruption very aggressively and kind of repress the employees,I think then the corruption will be nearly zero percent.It might not be the most 'good looking' way but in this situation, actually repress is acting oppositely to the corruption.

    Human rights and democracy are not opposites, but joint preconditions for the success of a political community. First of all, democracy is a system where public opinion gets the 1st priority. Most importantly people's interest gets priority in making the state policy. If people don't share their opinions this democracy can't be continued. and People's individual freedom and freedom of speech are ensured in this democracy. And now what actually everyone wants? Obviously, they want their speech to be valued by someone or their speech have importance in any work. And this thing is fully maintained in democracy system. Here any people of the country can share his or her thinking and can say what he really wants. And all the time at any situation, People's individual freedom and freedom of speech are ensured in this democracy. So, I think democracy and human rights are related to each other.

    Election is one of the most important founding principles of democracy. The citizens get the option to elect their country's representative. The election of representatives is run through voting. According to democracy, every decision has to include the opinion of the citizen or population. Election is the main and legal way of expressing that opinion. Therefore, democracy cannot run without election.

    DEMOCRACY is allowing every body to have their say in how they want things to go: laws to be made and who they want to be in power, based on their political views people will have differences of opinion. This is why we have ELECTIONS, so that the over all judgement (usually a county or country's)is heard and acted upon, not everyone is going to agree on everything, so we need to take the overall opinion so the decisions benefit the majority. It would be impossible to act on every ones opinion since some contradict each other. An ELECTION is futile and redundant without DEMOCRACY. A DEMOCRACY is dependent on ELECTIONS to make sure everyone has their say, as previously stated.

    I think, "Vote Based System(DEMOCRACY) and "Common Freedoms(HUMAN RIGHTS)" both are interrelated. Legitimate execution of basic freedoms can make the destinations of majority rules system effective. Then again, on the off chance that an exact and constitution based popular government are continued in a country, common liberties and independency of individuals will be guaranteed naturally. Along these lines, both Democracy and Human privileges all together guarantee the appropriate improvement of any state and both work for the interest of people.That's the reason DEMOCRACY and HUMAN RIGHTS can be called different sides of an equivalent coin.

    Majority Rule Government or DEMOCRACY is permitting each body to give their opinion by they way they need things to go: laws to be made and who they need to be in power, in light of their political perspectives individuals will have contrasts of assessment. This is the reason we have ELECTIONS, with the goal that the over all judgement(usually a region or nation's) is heard and followed up on, not every person will settle on everything, so we really want to take the general assessment so the choices advantage the greater part. It would be difficult to follow up on each one assessment since some go against one another. An ELECTION is vain and excess without DEMOCRACY. A DEMOCRACY is subject to ELECTIONS to ensure everybody expresses their opinion, as recently expressed.

    "What is the crucial part of vote based system?" Your ans ought to be "Political race." There is no option in contrast to political race in a vote based type of government to show the state to individuals' delegates. Individuals practice their popularity based freedoms by partaking in the political decision and projecting their votes. Thus, as per my viewpoint as the "Majority rule government" of an individual is guaranteed through appropriate "Political decision," these two words are interrelated to one another.

    Presently, what is guaranteed through political race? Without a doubt, your answer will be "Basic liberties." If your leader let you know today that you would remain for nothing in a castle except for you would never meet your family, what might you do?You won't ever at any point acknowledge that in case you're not ravenous. On the off chance that your attitude is all around ok, you'll need to get the need of your words. Indeed! We are person who truly love to give need and get need. So basic liberties assume an extraordinary part in our satisfaction. As the Preliminary method of guaranteeing common liberties is political decision, we can say that "Basic freedoms" and "Political race" are interrelated.

    Did you recall what did the previous US president "Abraham Lincoln" say about vote based system? He characterized vote based system as the "Public authority of individuals, by individuals, for individuals." Yes! Where popularity based framework is rehearsed in a country in the most ideal way, the basic liberties stay flawless there consistently. Popular government trains us to regard different choices. It likewise balance the freedoms of people. As popular government is the most valuable way of guaranteeing the central freedoms of person, the two words "Majority rules system " and "Common liberties" are interrelated to one another.

    Presently, if you were to request that I draw a state triangle, the 3 components which I'll jump at the chance to interface are-"Vote based system", "Political race" and "Basic liberties."

    I think human rights and elections are interconnected because it is our natural right to participate in elections and vote for those we love, as is happening nowadays.
